My drive is almost fill a 4g now when i plug it in it is not reading any of the stored files.


Hello there!

USB flash drives in general, are wonderful little tools that allow people to store a relatively a large amount of data in a compact and portable interface that is extremely easy to use at all. The downside of storing lots of critical data on a USB flash drive, however, is that they're fairly susceptible to damage and that you can lose all of your information immediately if something goes wrong. When troubleshooting a USB flash drive, there are several key things to check and to remember that will help you to determine whether your flash drive is destroyed or not.

1. Look and see whether or not your USB flash drive's indicator lights are activated when it is plugged in to your computer's USB port. The vast majority of USB flash drives have small LED lights located somewhere on them that flash intermittently when they're hooked up to a computer. If your light does not turn on, then it's either not plugged in properly or is damaged and likely not repairable.

2. Make sure to download and install the right driver software for your USB flash drive.
3. Try your USB flash drive on more than one computer before giving up on it altogether. If it works on another computer, then the problem is likely with your computer hardware or software, not with the USB flash drive.
4. If you cannot restore your files, you may use a third party software to recover them.

Flash drive not lighting up and not being read


Hello aaron_s_robe,

Sounds like the flash drive may be faulty. You may try plugging it into another USB port on your computer, if that doesnt help try plugging it into another computers USB port.

If after trying the above doesnt work. Your drive is most likely bad.

Gateway computer does not turn on


Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

Usb 8 gb doesn't show on my pc, light flickers and stays on


Probably the flash drive is not getting enough power from the computer. Try to connect the flash drive to the USB port located at the back of the tower.

Blue light flashed on the portable hard drive for a couple seconds.How do I know if all files were transfered? Nothing on screen showed up? I have a HP laptop.


If your portable hard drive was set up as the "H" drive, go to My Computer (in Windows XP), or Computer (in VISTA), select your "H" drive and view your files (if there).
